What's more fun than getting in the water? Judging by how many grown-ups flock to sun and sea for a holiday, nothing! Water is also great for little ones, and parents are aware of the great benefits swimming have for their babies. But life with a baby can be hectic even for the best planners, so despite best intentions, swimming can often slip to the bottom of the list.
For babies water is something entirely new, maybe even scary. And that asks for a lot more care and comforting from parents when starting out. Even after that, each trip to a pool is an adventure in itself, one that needs a lot of preparation. It's easy to see why parents might opt for something a little easier, even though they know swimming is good for their baby.
Hence our insight:
'Every parent wants to give their child the best start in life.'
We wanted to ease this anxiety about baby swimming and inspire parents to make another trip sooner than planned with the help of Huggies® Little Swimmers®. But mums are often overloaded with conflicting information that can be hard to sift through. As Huggies® Little Swimmers® are the UK and Ireland’s No.1 Swim Pant, we knew there was an even bigger role the brand could play.
So we invited mum to do the best for her baby by starting a habit that lasts a life time, with the help of our expertly designed products & inspiring baby swimming content.
‘Huggies® Little Swimmers® would make baby swimming as easy as 1-2-3.’
By inspiring mums to think about the lifelong rewards of baby swimming and giving her everything she needs to embrace them, we wanted to get her to swim more often & ultimately to buy one more packs of Huggies® Little Swimmers®.

That meant putting a lot of emphasis on planning the user experience, which would then be turned into effective design and content. Here's how we took on the challenge:
